Do you love salmon? If so, how do you usually cook it?
Salmon is an exceptionally delicious and highly nutritious type of fish that contains many of the vitamins and minerals our bodies crave — vitamins A, B-12, B-6, D, magnesium, iron, copper, potassium, calcium, and more.
But if you tend to cook it the same way every dinner, why not switch up the method?
Finding a new way to cook it can result in different tastes, textures, and even aromas. You may be pleasantly surprised by what a new cooking method might do!
To poach salmon, you’ll need to cook it in a flavorful liquid, such as water, broth, or wine.
The benefit of cooking salmon this way is that it infuses the salmon with additional flavor.
Poaching is an excellent option if you're looking for a healthy way to cook salmon because there is no need to add additional oils or fats.
However, because the cooking liquid does not come into contact with the heat source, it can be more difficult to control the cooking temperature, so it is crucial to keep an eye on the salmon while it is poaching.
Sous Vide salmon isn't the most common, but it's undoubtedly one of the best ways to cook salmon.
This method involves cooking the salmon in a vacuum-sealed bag in a water bath.
Sous Vide salmon is cooked at a lower temperature for a longer period, which results in a more evenly cooked piece of salmon.
This method is also a fantastic choice if you want to avoid overcooking your salmon, as it is challenging to overcook salmon when using the Sous Vide method, which is why I preferred it when I started learning to cook.
